Food Scene
Maybe the best Tennessee-style fried chicken you can find outside Tennessee. Spicy and delicious. Also great mac/cheese, sides, and brunch dishes.

Excellent. Italian-style pizza, maybe the best. Try the fried pizza dough appetizer with ricotta and prosciutto. A fun place for couples as well as families, just a stylish, casual place.

Oh man, the tacos are irresistible. Fried avocado and jalapeno taco, unbelievable. You haven't tasted anything quite like that, I'm sure of it. Brisket taco no slouch either.

Food is pretty good for breakfast - not quite as good as Peach's Hot House for brunch next door, but they're open for breakfast all week. The service can be slow, but in general we like it. Coffee isn't bad either, although Anchor is better if that's all your after, and if you don't need a place to sit I would recommend getting breakfast sandwiches from Chickie's across the street. But, this is a totally passable, laptop-friendly cafe, and a nice place to hang out.

Citibike, New York's bikeshare. In my opinion, biking is the single best way to see Brooklyn - I bike everywhere. Please be safe, though. You're welcome to borrow a helmet.
